I am trying to find a way to use API calls (or something easier!) that will allow me to resize and possibly move the main window of Access while the app is running.  Any help?

Hi !

The code as follow :

Option Compare Database
Option Explicit

Public Const HWND_TOP = 0
Public Const SWP_SHOWWINDOW = &H40

Type RECT
        Left As Long
        Top As Long
        Right As Long
        Bottom As Long
End Type

Declare Function GetWindowRect Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As Long, lpRect As RECT) As Long
Declare Function SetWindowPos Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal hWndInsertAfter As Long, ByVal x As Long, ByVal y As Long, ByVal cx As Long, ByVal cy As Long, ByVal wFlags As Long) As Long

Function setSizeAccess() As Boolean
    Dim rc As RECT
   
    GetWindowRect Application.hWndAccessApp, rc
    MsgBox "left = " & rc.Left & Chr(13) & _
            "right = " & rc.Right & Chr(13) & _
            "top = " & rc.Top & Chr(13) & _
            "bottom = " & rc.Bottom & Chr(13)
    msgbox SetWindowPos(Application.hWndAccessApp, HWND_TOP, _
            rc.Left, rc.Top, (rc.Right - rc.Left)+100,
(rc.Bottom - rc.top) + 100, SWP_SHOWWINDOW)
End Function

If I am correct you should flip the sides you are summing:
(rc.Right - rc.Left) should be (rc.left-rc.right)
(rc.Bottom - rc.top) should be (rc.top - rc.bottom)

Right?
